I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Sprint. I received product to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
My husband is a great guy. He takes care of the kids all day while I live my dream, and he is quick to make sacrifices so that the rest of us can have nice things. He isn’t much for keeping up with the latest gadgets (I’m the geek in the family) and his cellphone is so ancient it gives me visions of tin cans and string. I have been thinking a lot lately about what to get him for Christmas this year, and after he shattered his phone a few weeks ago I decided to take the plunge and get him a shiny new upgrade!
Personally I’m not an Android girl, but when I got my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note5 from Sprint all that changed. This baby is NICE! The first thing I noticed is that it feels good to hold it. I know that sounds a little weird, but it’s true – it is sturdy and solid, which if you’ve checked out any of the newer phones these days you have probably felt some that are on the flimsy side. This one has a nice weight to it, and the size/shape is perfect. Before now, my husband has always had “cheap” phones – he doesn’t really keep up with the tech trends, and he certainly isn’t one to go out and drop a couple hundred dollars on one, so I can’t wait to see him open it this year because I know he will be surprised!
So what makes this phone stand out among the rest? Well, a lot! First, the display is amazing. With a huge 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED® display, graphics are gorgeous and crystal clear. You know how much I love big, beautiful graphics, and even watching movies on this is a fabulous experience!
It comes with an S-pen which I LOVE and so does my husband. He has big hands (not freakish or anything, but you know, guys fingers are just bigger than mine) so touch screen operation is just a little more difficult for him. With the handy stylus, he can pop it out and work the phone like a champ!
Speaking of the stylus, you can use it to write whatever you want wherever you want. You can make notes, draw on the home screen, and so much more! Cool, right?! This baby also takes great photos with a 16-megapixel rear facing camera and a 5-megapixel front facing camera. You can access the camera from any screen by double tapping the Home button, and with features like autofocus, burst mode, an 8x zoom, LED flash and panoramic photo capabilities, it is packed with extras!
Are you ready to grab up this phone yet? I know I am! So here’s the breakdown of plans, pricing, and a super cool bonus from the folks at Amazon. If you’re a new Sprint customer, here are a few options that may be right for you in the Family Share Pack Plan with Starter Unlimited Data:
- With the Sprint Starter Unlimited Data plan, you can choose a 1GB high speed data for $20/month plus unlimited data at 2G speeds so you don’t have to worry about overages.
- You can purchase additional high speed data, plus get unlimited talk/text for $20 more per month on the Sprint network with Global Roaming included.
- Need a family plan? Switch to Sprint and get four lines featuring unlimited talk, text, and 40GB of high speed data to share for $120/month.
I’d say those are pretty nice choices! And the best of all? New and existing Sprint customers who buy/activate the Samsung Galaxy Note5 by November 30th get a year of Amazon Prime for FREE! That includes all the perks of a full membership – isn’t that fabulous?!! Are you ready to grab this amazing deal and device? Here’s the breakdown of how to make it happen.
